    Yeah, yeah, I know, the best deals are on release week but the wife told me yesterday that she loved Goldmember. I really liked The Spy who Shagged Me best, so I said, geez, might as well grab the 3pk.

    So with the research I did, it looks like this trying to get it in by Christmas of course:

    Amazon.ca - ~$36.40 total, using .65 CAN/US conversion, plus $10CAN coupon (CANADAREWARD) and 4-7 day international shipping.

    DVDSoon - ~$36.70, using .65 conversion, and 7-10 day shipping.

    Playcentric - ~$39 total, using $1 off plus free priority shipping code

    I'm leaning towards Amazon.ca followed by Playcentric as I haven't dealt with DVDSoon before and have had good results from the other two. DVDpricesearch doesn't show a too high of vendor rating.

    Can I do better?

    TIA! Bob

    If you order these from Canada you'll get bilingual packaging + they're distributed by Alliance Atlantis up here, not New Line.

    Are the Canadian products in this 3pk packaged in Snapper or Amaray keepcases?

    So it's only packaging, right? I saw the Alliance banner on one of the sites. The sites also show region 1 so I don't really care if the packaging is bilingual...or should I?

    Thanks for the info.

    Incidentally I was just looking for the 3pk on amazon.ca and noted they have a set labeled as IMPORT. Does anyone know if this "import" 3pk means the US release in english only multi-color(?) keep cases as opposed to the CDN Alliance Atlantis bilingual release? The graphic seems to show it is the AA pack, but those pictures aren't always accurate it seems.
    $56 cdn is a pretty good deal for the US set if so as thats the one I want.

    Richard,

    Lucky day for you (and me). I emailed customer service and they told me that it was the New Line distributed version vs. the Alliance version.

    I also confirmed that DVDSoon's is from Alliance. I didn't bother with Playcentric as theirs is in the $40 range plus shipping.

    Yes, with the $10CAN off, it's a steal in the low $30's US. I ordered it yesterday after confirmation.

    Bob

    I ordered the 3 pack from amazon.ca and it is the multicolored cases US version.

    I am a Canadian, and the price was decently cheap for the import version. If that is the one you're looking for, amazon.ca is the place with the best price that I have found.
